The Visual Arts Annex opened in 2002 and houses ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and 3D Design. It provides large shops for the technical requirements of these fields including: welding, woodworking, bronze/aluminum casting, gas/electric ceramic firing, lithography, intaglio, and relief printing. The surrounding grounds are used for student experiments in public art and outdoor construction.

The VAA is located at the northwest corner of Ridge Drive and McElroy Road.
